Hey, new guy here. I've got a couple of questions, and if this is the wrong board, please delete it, or move it. I'm looking at buying a supposedly Eric Johnson strat from a guy I work with. I've seen the guitar, but it was at a party about 6 months ago. It has an EJ neckplate, but the pups have been replaced w/ hotrails. Why? I have no clue. Also, I seem to remember that the "original contour body" sticker on the headstock was worn and coming off. My questions: Isn't the sticker on the headstock under laquer? And, if it is a legit EJ, how hard would it be to find EJ pups? Also, if there are any sure fire ways to tell if it is an original, that'd be helpful. I plan on checking the serial number, but the guy could've slapped a EJ neckplate he got from somewhere on the guitar. From memory, it looked like an EJ...staggered tuners, no back cover, ect... Just looking for tips, as he sounded like he wanted to rid himself of it quickly and possibly for a very low price. Thanks in advance.
